Dear Jason, Thank you for your feedback, we do feel sorry but it's not our fault. The Deliveroo driver came late to pick up the food, and then dropped it on your door step... We believe that you should contact Deliveroo with your experience that...More

Booked Da Vinci’s for xmas Party. Ambience was lovely, drinks a plenty... however food was hideous. Watery and very oily. However tiramisu was superb! Might try restaurant again with just family and perhaps not a pre made menu.

Average Italian restaurant. Nice decor with authentic feel, good service (although they brought wrong wine). Food filling and tasty but nothing special, would try other local restaurants before going again.

Staff always attentive. Had the most beautiful ravioli stuffed with crab, pasta was almost transparent and filling really fresh. Steak and Calves liver always very good.

Just the best pasta anywhere. They serve excellent steaks and fresh fish dishes too. The guy who runs it has been there 25 years I believe. He is from Southern Italy. I have been many times now and it is always wow.

Having been our restaurant of choice down bu the quay, opposite various vessels; it is typical Italian. All Italian waiters/waitresses make you welcome from the start. The owner will come to see you; kiss the ladies hand, as they do. We usually have a drink...More
